The Battle for Toad Hall - 15 - 19 February

StorytellerDuring the half term week (15 - 19 February) a costumed storyteller will be bringing to life the timeless classic stories from ‘The Wind in The Willows’ whose author, Kenneth Grahame, worked at the Bank for 30 years.  

Toad Hall has been taken over by those pesky weasels; it’s a fight against time for Mr Toad and his friends Ratty, Mole and Badger to claim back Toad's home. Will they succeed and return to Toad Hall, the glorious country house, or will the chief weasel take over forever?

These fun and interactive sessions will spark young ones imaginations (and maybe adults too). Story times are 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm, 3.00pm and 4.00pm. Although there is no need to book, space is limited, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Mr ToadWhilst in the Museum there are plenty of attractions to ensure a family fun day out, including banknote jigsaw, a roller ball game and the opportunity for some safe cracking. There is even a genuine gold bar which can be held, although weighing an impressive 13 kilos, it will certainly take people by surprise. Activity sheets are also available for children of all ages, with a small prize for all those who take part.

Admission and all activities are free
